I've now made these twice and my review is based on both tries. These are not cakey ladyfingers, rather a delicate crisp cookie that has that same delicate flavor accented quite beautifully with orange. My first try I followed the recipe as presented and the batter did not hold its shape and I ended up with wafer like cookies. So light, they even had little air bubbles that you might see in something like a tuile cookie. The second time, they were good enough to merit a second chance, I whipped the whites separately and folded the remaining ingredients in adding an extra tablespoon or so of cake flour. The second cookie (shown in the picture) did a much better job of holding the shape but was less tender and more crispy. Had the second batch with Mexican cocoa a great combination of flavors - chocolate and cinnamon from the beverage and orange from the cookie. JQ - thanks for the help on this one, I know it can be a challenge with adopted recipes.
